The mutual reception between Uranus and Neptune and the transition to the Aquarius Age
How many times have you heard of the next humankind
stage, the famous and long awaited Aquarius Age..?
It is a well-known and fiercely debated subject
because there is no agreement among its supporters as to when it will begin.
Given the current astrological and socio-political situation in the world some
say it is on its way, fast approaching.
The current Uranus-Neptune mutual reception is an
astrological influence which marks the transition from the previous humanity
age, the Pisces, characterized by the religious dogma, spiritual and scientific
ignorance of the humankind in general, the Pisces' dark side. Real life and
Universe mysteries. Knowledge was reserved for very few mortals.
The spirit of the future age of Aquarius is quite
the opposite, characterized by the diffusion of real knowledge to the masses,
fraternity and spiritual enthusiasm. Neptune, the Pisces ruler, is actually the
dissolution of the Self, while Uranus intensifies the Self and
The Uranus Neptune mutual reception (Uranus in
Pisces & Neptune in Aquarius) makes it possible to conciliate these
tendencies, serving for a gradual awakening of the Soul of the World to the
values of the Aquarius Age.
I have searched for other Uranus-Neptune mutual
receptions in the 2000 B.C - 3000 A.D period (5000 years) and the results of
this study shows that because of the revolution movement of the two planets
(Neptune's revolution around the Sun is about two times bigger than Uranus'),
there are periods when this occurs and then a long time when there is no mutual
reception between Uranus and Neptune.
So, in the 5000 year period there are only 6
Uranus-Neptune mutual receptions; around 1506, 1670, 1835, 2004, 2170 and 2338.
This is no accident because the 1506 - 2338 period of mutual receptions covers
exactly the transition period from the age of Pisces to the age of Aquarius.
This is the astrological demonstration of the reality of these ages and the fact
that we are living right now in the middle of the transition period to the
The first Uranus-Neptune mutual reception (1506)
came shortly after the discovery of the 'New World' by Columbus in 1492. Does
this expression 'New World' ring a bell to you ? It is one of the most widely
expression used in relation with the Aquarius Age.
The 6 Uranus-Neptune mutual receptions may
represent 6 different stages of the gradual transformation of the humanity
towards the New Age. In spirituality and esoterism there are always 7 stages of
any initiation, 6 of them more or less related with different aspects of the
manifested world, and the 7th transcendental or of total accomplishment of the
initiation. These 7 stages are related also with the general spiritual meanings
of the 7 chakras.
The first level is the material one and the first
Uranus-Neptune mutual reception of 1506 is associated with the discovery of new
territories, actually whole new continent, to exploit their riches and
The second level has to do with the social
relationship and organization, and so the Uranus-Neptune mutual reception of
1670 will soon determine transformations in the social layers, such as the
England's 'Glorious Revolution' of 1688.
The third level is associated with the power of
will and initiative, or, from a collective perspective, with the emancipation of
the peoples, therefore the third Uranus-Neptune mutual reception of 1835 lead to
the revolution of peoples in Central Europe in 1848, the abolition of slavery in
America after the Secession War.
The forth level is linked with the harmonious
expression of the sentiments, both from a personal or collective point of view,
and this is the level we live right now in the current Uranus-Neptune mutual
reception. Its effects will be visible a decade or two later, as we have seen in
the previous cases. I sincerely hope it will bring during the next years a more
compassionate and empathic attitude towards our neighbours and the people will
understand that aggression and violence, or the indifference to somebody else's
suffering are unacceptable attitudes in a civilized world. This will stop or at
least diminish the frequency of wars and be a sure sign of the approaching New
Age, the Age of Aquarius.
The next two levels, the fifth and the sixth, will
likely be associated with a intuitive understanding of the unity of all life
forms in our common evolution on this planet and the deep and total
comprehension of the scientific and spiritual laws of the Universe.
As you see, all this transformation, is very much
up to us, it may be our destiny as a humanity, but it surely requires effort and
time. You are also called to help this wonderful ideal come into
